The Seventh McNugget

We all can't be one of the Six.

05 August 2005


Today at the ritzy local Taco Bell, the guy in front of me was sportin' a Rolex. Well, maybe.

The guy was about my age... maybe 28 or so. Dressed ok... in what looked like a golf outfit (shoes, polo, etc..). He had a Rolex Submariner on his wrist.

Before you bow before my awesomeness in being able to spot and know the particular model of his watch, you should know that I once owned an identical Rolex Submariner, and that's why I immediately recognized it. So now you think I'm even more incredible, except my Rolex was a (pretty-good) knock-off bought for $50 in a dark Manhatten corner.

So, I'm wondering if this guy's is legit or a fake like mine was. So I decide (perhaps unfairly) that I will make that judgement based on the car he gets into when he leaves.

A very unimpressive Mazda Protege.

So either it's fake, or the guy spends more on his watch than his car. I'm guessing that's unlikely. Probably fake... or his Mercedes CL65 AMG is in the shop and he's driving his wife's car... in which case, the guy is a big prick for making his wife drive a daggum Protege.

Anyway, the whole thing convinced me to pick up a new fake Rolly next time I visit NYC.

Or maybe it was a gift from a rich relative. I know someone who owns a $2000 watch--and doen't even have a car. A gift from his mommy, I think.

doen't = doesn't, of course.

I need some relatives like that. On second thought, I like the ones I have.

My bro bought a fake Movado(SP) and it broke in a week. You get what you pay for.

Yeah, my "Rolex" only lasted about 2 months.
